What is the #1 thing you want to do and haven't done yet?

My number one is to go to Scotland. I have only flown once and that would be the thing that would stop me from going sad.gif

First, why is flying only once stopping you?

And as for me...the #1 thing is probably publish a novel.

And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

I think she may be saying once was enough to figure out she hates flying. I don't like it meself . . . sad.gif

I'm with you, CC -- I'd like to publish a book. I have one short, sharp novel for young adults and one long novel looking at war, and why we seem to need our differences so badly we kill each other over them.

yeah, I hated flying. I went to Vegas this summer and the whole flight was terrible. I don't know though, maybe like if I did it a few more times it wouldn't bother me so much....but I don't know.

Having a novel published would def be second for me.

Here's some other stuff:
See Ireland and Scotland.
Get a doctoral degree.

That's pretty much it for the big ones.

I've sat here thinking about this - picked up and dropped several things, even decided some are too personal to voice ...

But I guess travelling is probably the thing I've not really done and would love to do.

1. Get a job.
2. Travel to Europe (especially Ireland, Scotland, France and the former Eastern bloc).
3. Get rich.
4. Buy an iPod.

Ya know. I was just thinking about something.

We are all posting here what we dream of doing. It's all fine and dandy. We can want to travel, get published, heck, GET NOTICED all we **** well please. Some of us have even already accomplished what others dream of. How many of us who read this thread, when we think on these things keep making excuses? "I don't have the money", "I'd never have the time", or my personal favorite "I just don't feel up to the effort." (in various forms)

I'm posting this as much for my own benefit as anyone else's. I've got a bad, evil, habit of starting something and never finishing it. When I say that last excuse is a personal favorite, I say I've come up with a flavor of it for every important thing I've ever wanted to do.

Why haven't I finished my story and added all the other nice installments I dream up? "I don't have time to sit down and figure out how to crop a 40 page manuscript into a nice action packed tale someone might want to read"

I've got tons if ideas for cool technologies and how to make them work, not the least of which is a room not too far removed from the holodecks in ST:TNG. Why am I not developing it? "I don't have the ability to fabrecate things like that"

Why haven't I started making scrolls of my poems?

Why haven't I started learning western martial arts?

Why don't I have myself a nice house on the shores of a wooded pond or lake?

Why am I not in a job earning what I know I'm worth?

Why don't I have a nice model railroad going

Why am I not sleeping in the forest of a room I keep imagining ?

Why have I never completely polished any of those Demos Haldur did for me, and even tried to release anything???

Why have I never taken to cure my curiosity about Trigonometry and Calculus, instead of just kicking myself in the butt about it ever since my Junior year of High School

I could go on like this till my head explodes. The question is, what are any of us doing to ACCOMPLISH any of these dreams.

Any of us, have only one person to blame for a list like this. Ourselves. And now that I am to this point in this post, I feel afraid to type, and even more afraid to answer the question I wanted to vent all this to ask, of myself, and of my friends.

We have been told all our lives that we can do whatever we set our minds to. I found this as true six years ago. Nothing can stop any human being except death and themselves (And not always the former)

So what are any of us doing to change these from what we only dream of doing to what we have done?

I never really thought about that until you stated it. It is true that I am, at this point and time, not doing anything about it cause the one thing I fear is stopping me. (flying) oh and well, getting the extra $ to go, but that will come as soon as I finish w/ my degree.

But you are absolutely right, we can do anything we set our minds too, and yeah, mine is an excuse cause I am sure I could get over my fear of flying...kwim?

a- you just keep going....one day if you work hard enough and push your life into shape you really can do anything......sometimes we can't do things because of other people not just ourselves or lack of funds!!taking care of your family, your pets sometimes theses are not excuses but just plain old life.....want to travel??start small.....visit museums in your area, then theater....then try making time for a week end in another province(ooppss, i meant state) and work out....sometimes it starts off slow and then it just becomes a habit!!!!put aside 10.00 from each pay and before you know it you've got enough to go on a cruise!!! put 20.00 from each pay and you can do alot of travel in europe!!!i mean if you don't see the moey how can you miss it???as for writing...that's harder....but again start off slow, pick one of your pet projects and do a bit, put it away but come back to it the next day...slowly, slowly things begin to happen and build!!! hug.gif
